Park Board

This past season I really started getting into snowboarding as I went every week twice. I have a 2010 deuce 162 wide board which allowed me to rock the trails and after a while I started heading into the park. I loved hitting the small rails and small jumps and really want to learn more stuff. But I feel that my board is holding me back from doing just that. It is a great freeride board but it doesnt translate well when doing maneuvers on a box. I have big feet (Size 14 to be exact) and have large mission bindings in great condition. What board should I pick up for the park that I could use with these bindings? I have a budget of probably 500 bucks as I will start working while I am in university and won't be making that much.

Burton - 2010 Deuce - 162 Wide
Burton - Restricted Ruler Boots - Size 14
Burton - Restricted Mission Bindings - Large
Red - Trace - Extra-Large
Smith - Cascade Goggles
Dakine - Legacy Gloves
Bonfire - Cascade Brown
Burton - Cargo Pant Black - Extra-Large

someone posted this in one of the reviews section

K2 WWW Wide review
YouTube - 2011 K2 WWW Wide Snowboard Review

i think that might be something good for you to look into.

perhaps also look into the Ride Kink W. not really sure what else is out there that's wide (i have small feet) so perhpas I will leave you with that and let other members take over from here..

If your board is in perfect condition at the end of the season, you're doing it wrong!

i would say 155-156 should be the smallest you go based on weight and shoe size.

just noticed that capita makes a horrorscope in a 155w hahah so i'd add that to your list as well.

Took to long to post and you answered before I hit GO.

Try a 155w Flow Era, 156w Ride Kink, or a 156w Forum Destroyer Chili.

i can vouche for the flow era, board has been great to me so far, has nice flex to do butters and presses all day, but isnt a huge noodle so you can also ride some groomers on chill days. i also hit some small jumps with it and its got a decent pop for being reverse camber board, definetly a great park board.

Life is a giant high five, huck it every chance you get.
